According to him, the suspect lured his five-year-old and seven-year-old victims to an uncompleted building in the Akepe area of Osogbo, where he raped them.

“Investigation showed that the suspect is highly notorious and a serial rapist.



    “Upon interrogation, he confessed to committing the crime and he has been transferred to the police for investigation and prosecution.

    “I thank residents of the area of the incident who did well by informing us about what happened. I appreciate them for their support,’’ Adewinmbi said.

    The Amotekun commander reiterated the corps’s commitment to fighting crimes in Osun and assured cooperation with other security agencies to rid the state of criminals.
